is the democratic party the party of barack obama? when does that shift so it goes back to the clinton era, if hillary chooses to run? when does that shift take place? >> as a president goes through a second term, interest in the president starts to go to the congressional wing of the party. what obama is trying to achieve for his legacy does not necessarily line up with what congressional democrats are interested in, in making a clear distinction between who they are and republicans. i want to reinforce democrats are not in as bad as a shape as republicans. the democrats really are not attached to obama like republicans were to reagan. when obama ran, he ran against the establishment of a party. he did not have a "democrat" on his bumper sticker. his identity was to be separate from washington. he did not campaign for democrats. his appeal is less transferable for democrats going forward than they did for a type of person who had been elected like bill clinton. >> that is what becomes a case in the democratic party? >> you guys did a great job. jimmy carter was president four years, but y

benefits as couples. in fact, bill clinton who signed doma into law when he was president, is now asking the u.s. supreme court to overturn it. let's bring in cnn legal contributor powell cowen. how much will the reversal potentially make? >> supreme court justices would tell you they're immune from politicians lobbying them. they're appointed for life by the president, and the founding fathers frankly set up the system so you would have sort of an independent judiciary. i don't think bill clinton's position will have a major impact on the court. >> so what the constitutional argument that will be made to keep doma in place? >> well, there are two cases before the court this week. one on tuesday and one on wednesday. the first on tuesday is called the prop 8 case. california case, and it's very interesting because the california supreme court said gay marriage is legal. they said it's against the california constitution to ban it. and then lawyers came in and voters went out and they adopted prop 8, which amended the california constitution to make it illegal. so they stuck it to the jud
government promised former secretary of state hillary clinton to inspect all of iranian flights so far that's reportedly not happening. now secretary kerry's turn to get it done. >> good morning. wink, wink, nudge, nhung from the iraqis to the iranians. the revolutionary guard soldiers to head from iran into syria to help assad. the united states has only pressured the iraqis privilege atly up until now. the fact they are doing so publicly and sharing intelligence means the shaming of iraq now begins. fox news was the first organization to report on the freight. the combination of everything from syrian airliners to shankar go planes. eye rain wran cargo planes, supply anything that syria needs. money, weapons and ammunition, soldiers. all those kinds of things from tehran into various bases all around syria. western intelligence sources confirmed to fox news that the video you are watching now is amateur video of those planes landing inside of syria. of course, no secrets the flights take place multiple times a week. it is no secret that the iranians support the syrians. what has the unite
that hillary clinton is publicly supporting same-sex marriage. of course, her husband, former president bill clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to
think about part of that where joseph knight talks about smart power and hillary clinton did a lot of work on that as well, that culture and ideas and the ability for people to know what's going on in other parts of the world and be inspired by that. there's a lot of that going on in terms of exchange of ideas between global peers in the ability during the protests in wisconsin on the collective bargaining issues. they were young people who are holding up signs that said walk like an egyptian which i thought was a great way of showing that local connectedness. those people felt inspired by what was going on in the arab spring around the same time and there was some kind of -- young people holding up the signs having that solidarity so that's a good way of thinking about the ability to, both from the west to other countries back to the west that young people are inspired and engage with their global peers. >> host: there has been criticism that young people have not been engaged in politics, in meaningful ways and they be their engagement feels cursory or superficial. does that fit?
begin, as you know, by quoting bill clinton in a speech he gave in yale in 2003. america assumes it will be number one forever and continue doing whatever you're doing and doesn't matter because you'll be number one forever. but if you can conceive of the possibility of becoming number two, surely it is in america's interest to create order that would then constrain the next number one. that is very wise of bill clinton to say that. i'm sorry he didn't follow it up by pushing hard for it. but my book builds on that insight of bill clinton that now is the time for america and the west to create an order that will constreany rising powers i world. >> new security council, what is the chance of this happening? when you look at the reform, you will want singapore's ambassador of the u.n. you tried to get india on china vetoes and you tried to take nigeria, the south africans get upset or vice versa. it's never going to happen. >> but you're absolutely right. and that's precisely the problem that for every japan, there's a south kor that says no. all the losers, the mexicos, the pakis
. for example, bill clinton was not the first, and bill clinton was not the worst when it comes to misbehavior in high office. there's a long, long history of it. and eliot spitzer, arnold schwarzenegger, john edwards, these guys -- david petraeus had nothing on alexander hamilton. and what we find is if you read, for example, letters written by martha washington during those winter camps, she was tough. she was like a soldier. she didn't complain about the weather, she didn't complain about the harsh conditions, but she did complain about one thing. there was a tom cat one winter that was misbehaving, and it was noisy, noisy, and it kept her awake at night, so she nicknamed the tom cat alexander hamilton. [laughter] i also did a book a few years ago called "life in the white house," and it was about the presidents at ease. what do they eat? what hobbies do they have? what are they like as fathers and husbands? how did their their kids turn out? as another way of assess l presidential character, providing us with another lens. for example, we're all still trying to figure out dick nixon, right
begin, as you know, by quoting bill clinton in a speech he gave in yale in 2003 where he said america assumes it will be number one forever. please continue doing whatever you're doing, it doesn't matter because you'll be number one forever. but if you can conceive of the possibility of becoming number two, surely, it is in america's interest to create a world space order that will then constrain the next number one. that's very wise of bill clinton to say that. i'm sorry he didn't follow it up by pushing hard for it, but my book builds on that wisdom and insight of bill clinton that now is the time for america and the west to create a world space order that will constrain any rising powers anywhere in the world. >> some of the practical suggestion sas are things like new security council with 777 members. what is the chance of this happening when you look at the reform? you were once singapore's ambassador to the u.n. you know when people tried this, tried to get india, china vetoes. you try to get brazil on, the mexicans get upset. you take on nigeria, the south africans get upset.
, there is a mountain of paper iou's. president clinton warned in 1999 not just baby-boomers. we have 60%, 70% of boomers over age 65 by 2029 meaning you start to have to cash out the u.s. bonds meaning the bonds are going to start flooding back in the market causing rates t spike. i don't want that problem to get any worse. i want us to own the money and the viewer to own the money. >> scrap social security now for young workers zbxt good heavens, no. that money is going in the hands ever wall street where they are going to invest it inhony baloney securities, they are going to invest it in investments that they are betting against, they are going to do exactly -- >> the government never invests in anything phony. >> as they did the past 10 years that got a lot of people broke. you cannot turn this over to ll street until wall street shows us that they are prepared to do the right thing. >> has the government ever showed us that it's ready to invest wisely? >> no. in fact, ben bernanke and his counterpart, counterfitter in chief, obama and bernanke, they are robbing us of our savings. i like
, jerusalem was split. in what israel offered in camp david in the year 2000 with clinton as the witness, the israelis offered a division of jerusalem for the first time ever. that is simply factually wrong. the israelis have offered this, and arafat would not sign. the question is would anybody sign an agreement that aepts a jewish state, and for six decades, the answer has been no. >> 2008, different administrations in both israel and the united states, and the case and the reality is you cannot have israel existing as a single state without facing demographic distraction. that will change the entire character of israel. it will repeal the jewish values that have animated israel. that is to me, the real incentive. >> you cannot make peace if the other side wants to see nothing but your eradication. if that changes, there wl be a peace. republicans engage in some self-criticism and rand paul offers an immigration plan. >> there is no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we were not inclusive. >> the chairman of the republican committee. why did mit
it and start all over. >> 2200 pages turned into 20,000 so far. i remember when president clinton saiddy not have sex with that woman. president obama setd this will not add a single dime to the deficit. >> look, it's going to bring down health care costs. it's amazing people hate so much something that has barely taken effect. most hasn't gone into effect. the american people when asked about the specific provisions in the affordable care act like it. they like tax credits for small businesses to pay for insurance, they like cling the medicare donut hole, they like kids staying on insurance. 80% of people like those and less than 50% know they are in the bill. so stop smearing the bill to tell people wh's really in it. >> talk about why this didn't kick in. we had to wait until it got voted back in. they wrote this so that once he's in all the crabby stuff comes out. stuff we're two years in nobody has a clue what a state exchange is, nobody knows what is going to happen to medicare. good luck trying to find a doctor or nurse in the next couple years. they waited until the guy got back
the bold move with president clinton at camp david in the summer of 2000 we got the second antifattah and buses blowing up in the hearts of jerusalem and tel aviv and all of our major cities. over a thousand israelis killed. and as a result of a security situation that emnated from a poorly implemented peace process. now, i think israelis feel that we have to be past the arafat era and be in a new era of mutual recognition and real security and that is why prime minister netanyahu as he tries to make peace with the palestinians and the rest of the arab world will insist that any agreement we reach must be based on firm security grounds. >> mike: there appeared to be a thawing of what obviously had been a frosty relationship between the president and prime minister netanyahu. all of that is well and good anda you hope to see a warmer and more cordial relationship. the real question, do the israelis feel more confident that the united states will step in and do anything necessary to keep iran from having nuclear weapons? >> that is an excellent question, governor. because in our private
president bill clinton, as the president who signed the act into law, i have come to believe that doma is not accurate. i have asked jeffrey toobin to explain this. >> all we can say is that president clinton believes it was a mistake and whatever justification he had in 1996 was not good enough, and he, like virtually the entire democratic party now, repudiates it and they want to see it overturned. >> this is not a thumb's up or thumb's down decision, right? this is the supreme court, and so what are we looking at here? >> well, this is a bit of a rubik's cube, and both the defense of marriage act case and the challenge to proposition 8, the case that the law that bans same-sex marriage in california. the defense of marriage act case refers to the federal law that says that the federal government will not recognize same-sex marriages even in states where it is legal. so people, and gay people who are married in new york and new england and all of the states where it is legal, they cannot file joint tax return, and they can't get social security survivor's benefits and if the court up
to hillary clinton for president. mersaides and richard, welcome to both of you. americans are sick of this. look at the debt clock this. thing keeps whizzing up. the debt is mounting. every sunday, i show this. it has gone up another trillions, it seems, theres and multi-millions. mercedes, how do we stop that in its tracks and make it go the other way? >> we can't stop it when you have the budget plan that senator murray has pushed through. 50 of all, because it has such little support from american voters. for example, we saw a poll saying that only 28% of likely voters supported the senator murray plan. the majority of americans do believe that we need to cut the dev silt by $5 trillion, need to balance the budget and cut spending with no need for raising taxes to get the economy going and this is the way we ensure that our recovery -- we could really have an economic recovery, not by the budget which has been passed, which is the budget to nowhere. >> if the americans want it. how come the politicians are not doing it? mercedes? >> the reason is obviously, even when you look at senator
of marriage act 17 years ago had a change of heart in a "washington post" op ed. former president bill clinton wrote, as the president who signed the act into law, i have come to believe that doma is in fact imcompatible with our constitution. he said, back then it was less of a condemnation of legal marriage and a bit of legal maneuveri maneuvering. i asked jeffrey toobin to explain that. >> all we can say for sure is bill clinton thinks it was a mistake to sign doma. he wrote an op ed a couple of weeks ago saying whatever justification he may have had in 1996 wuntd good enough. and he, like virtually the entire democratic party, repudiates it and wants to see it overturned. >> this isn't a thumbs-up or thumbs-down decision. this is the supreme court. what are we looking at here? >> this is a bit of a rubik's coupe, the defense of marriage act and the case of proposition 8, the ban that prohibits same-sex marriage in california. the federal law says the federal government will not recognize same-sex marriages even in states where it's legal. so people -- gay people who are married in new york
of unresolved things by taking a stand and speaking forcefully for it. >> that was bill clinton after walter mondale lost it. after jimmy carter lost. we had a dynamic governor who was reformed minded and brought those issues into the national forefront. he really helped recharge the democratic party. you know, the republican party is out to lunch. i watched cpac, karl. karl was a former friend. >> i thought i was a current friend? >> you're always a friend, you owe me some chili. >> some fried chicken. >> i saved your life from malaria. >> i did. we go back a long way. here's the thing, the republican party is out to lunch. it's not just mechanics. it's not just communications. it's the party that continues to reject the majority of the american people and they feel it they don't want to be associated with a party that talks down to them, that attacks their rights and then call them victims. i think they're out to lunch. as far as i'm concerned, i will give them a bus ticket to continue to stay off the national radar. >> when i was covering the white house and karl was in it with george w.
in the past have used comedy more for self-dep ra kating humor. clinton made fun of himself being chubby. bush made fun of his greatest weakness, speaking english. now you have obama turning the table a bit. he makes fun of himself, but he uses comedy like a comedian, like a weapon, it's very effective. >> other presidents have had some good lines of their own. here's george w. bush at the 2008 correspondents dinner poking fun at then-candidates. >> next year a new president will be standing up here. i have to say i'm kind of surprised we don't have more presidential candidates here tonight, like any. senator mccain's not here. he probably wanted to distance himself from me a little bit. you know, he's not alone. jenna's moving out too. the two democratic candidates aren't here either. senator clinton couldn't get into the building because of sniper fire and senator obama's at church. >> all right. how is that any different than obama, dean? really. >> where did you find that? that ruins my entire thesis of my article. i can't believe you would find that and ruin it. it's true, some presidents
hilary clinton, i have big heels to fill. thank you for your work in san francisco. the city has a great person to run this city. finally i have to thank kathy. cameie brought in an incredible amount of enthusiasm and hard work to the office. most of all tammy cares about the district and never stops thinking about how to make it a place to want to live there. thank you. with that, i'm excited to work with the members of the board, the mayor and the rest of our residents and family to make this a great city.

clinton administration that he needed to keep track of statistics about the president's movements and the number of times he played golf, the number of fund raisers he's had, how much money he'd raised. just about anything you can imagine. he does this by studying the logs every day. he remains there sometimes until 8:00 or 9:00 at night. he has the most complete records that exist. if the white house has a question about some number, they will go and see what his number is. he is very meticulous, and we all are very thankful that there is a source like mark muller. >> mike is joining us. >> good morning. thank you for taking my call. >> go ahead. caller: how much information becomes confused as news? i would like to hear your opinion about fox news. it is parent to most independent and open-minded people that not only are there stories -- their stories skewed so far to the right, the talking points, every issue is turned into a scandal, is turned into more reasons to disrespect the president. i appreciate the media challenging the white house on everything. but i'd like to get yo
even as they tell us to leave. finally, see how she runs, hillary clinton's message on marriage equality fits her m.o. precisely, a scripted, polished dramatic video is just how she announced last time. looks like she is in. hi, i'm chris matthews, welcome to the show. with us today, the "washington post" david ignatius and kathleen parker. helene cooper and michael crowley. first up, what does barack obama know what we don't know pledging to use american power against iran and getting more deeply involved in syria? the american mood when it comes to using force feels like 1915, the end of vietnam. after that war, reluctance to commit power abroad was called vietnam syndrome. then came desert storm in 1991 and the first george bush told us that the lightning victory there had banished vietnam wearyness. >> it's a proud day for america and by god, we have kicked the vietnam syndrome once and for all. chris: after the second george bush launched two long wars, many feel war wearyness like against vietnam. against the wearyness, how should we take this week's statements from this p
act known as doma first passed by congress and signed by president clinton in 1996 is being challenged at the supreme court. >> being asked to decide there. whether or not congress can pass a law that treats same-sex couples who are already married under the laws of their state different from opposite sex couples. >> reporter: defenders of the law say congress has as much right as the states to make its own definition of marriage. >> doma is important because congress said it was important. we sent our elected representatives to washington, d.c., and they chose to say that marriage is one man and one woman for federal law. >> reporter: conservatives say the founding fathers never contemplated gay marriage. >> it's clearly not what anyone understood as marriage at the time of the framing of the constitution. >> reporter: still, same-sex family as pay taxes and don't get the same benefits. the issue with doma gets complicated if they have children who are also excluded from benefits. >> when we have kid, i would like them to be born in a post-doma united states. >> reporter: ironically,
people. when hillary clinton comes out and say she's in favor of gay marm, she got a lot of favorable press. senator rob portman said he was in favor of gay marriage because he has a son that came out as gay a lot whether this was a convenient statement or one motivated by the fact that he had somebody in his family. did you see a double standard? >> yes. one of those places if you're a republican and if you think i act more like a democrat, i'll get more positive coverage, it doesn't work that way. you'll get called out as cynical. you're darned if you do and darned if you don't. >> this particular reporter praised both of them for their hand, but, i want to identify it with a report. the report says young people more and more quote/unquote rolling their eyes more and more at what the republican starty stands for. 81% of young people support marriage equality. the day after this report came out, we at the republican party oppose marriage equality. do they follow the report or not? >> finally, i want to turn to the subject of gun control. back in the news, senate democrats decided not
. here's the problem. there's a survey done during the clinton administration that claims 36% of gun transfers were done without a background. the president took the survey, rounded up, that the big problem is changing the term transfer. there's a big difference between god purchase. the vast majority of these transfers are within inheritance. i don't think it would've had quite the bite of the president said look, there's too many pairing given a gun to their kid it's not going through the proper regulation. it's not as scary as saying 40% of gun sales are going ahead. and this survey was done between november 9th 291 and december december 1994. it only involves 251 individuals , that's the other problem is most of the survey was done before it even went into effect. this survey is going all the way back to 1991. there's other problems i could point out with this, britishers ridley misleading. these are not going -- they would say about 13.3% and that's even though most of his theater time is done before you had the brady act going into effect. even 13.3% is much too high because gu
] >> in a recent closed-door speech, bill clinton spoke about american dollars. "these people have been listening to this stuff so long, they believe that."
